MAWTT March 2016 Challenge. . . . . . . .


Good morning all. Hoping all is fine and dandy with you good folk.

Hello and welcome to Aquarius. Thank you for pressing the button and as soon as I get 5 minutes, I shall pop and visit your blog.

A quicky today as I'm typing this at silly o'clock again to schedule for my DT offering for MAWTT and I needed to be in bed early to get some rest before the onslaught of the NEC today.

My original card would not download from my camera as the software is playing up again so I've managed to find a couple of cards lurking in my early days files that would fit with this months theme which is Zoe's pick and is In the Garden.

These were from my pre-die cutting days when I thought decoupage was the ultimate thing to do on a card lol!!!


Well, I think I have moved along with the times with my cards since I made these............


Hope that you don't mind the oldies as I didn't want to let the team down by not showing anything.

Please pop along to the MAWTT Challenge blog to see what the rest of the team have created and hope we've inspired you to enter.

If any of you guys are at the NEC today, I shall be wearing a bright red cardi and top with my lions main let loose. Christine and I are meeting up so it will be great to catch up and hope to possibly bump into the 2 Ann/Annes.
Anyone going to John's workshop in Kettering, sorry I'll miss you this time but give him a few heckles for me lol!

Until next time, be good!

  1. Such sweet cards Ang! I love this layering technique. I've never tried it before but I think I may giver a go. Ever wonder why the call it decoupage? I mean, don't they also use that word for when you make a collage with many images and glue? What happened, they run out of words to use, or did the people who name things, just copy/paste another word so they could take the day off?? Helloooooo!

    I digress. lol. Love em Ang!! hugs :)

  3. Hi Ang, have a good day at NEC,I'm very envious of you, as i was very tempted to go, but from Kent it takes 2 hrs plus in the car, plus the cost of petrol, ticket & car parking makes it expenses before I've even bought anything for me!!!. I've got free tickets for Excel in April, so will just have to be patient. Please show all your goodies when you get back. MAWTT card is still in trend, as tatty teddy never goes out of fashion.

  11. Hi Ang. Hope you had a great day yesterday. I can only really go to the NEC once a year mainly due to the distance but also due to the temptations. LOL! I've never really done much decoupage - not enough patience to cut everything out. Best wishes. Anne.

  12. Hi Ang. What a cute set of cards. Hope you managed to stop the plastic jumping out of your bag too often at the NEC yesterday. John's workshop was great, but we missed you.
